  • pink pants
  • pink t-shirt
  • sofa cushions

  • Paint brush
  • Plastic pig ears

Go all pink as a little pig and inspire the other people. Show the world your homemade costume.

This is how the homemade piggy costume succeeds

  • Put on some pink pants and get a pink t-shirt. The t-shirt should be about four or five sizes larger than your actual t-shirt size.
  • Put on the pink t-shirt, take a sofa cushion and tuck it under the t-shirt at the front of your stomach. Now you have a homemade fat tummy. You can also attach the pillow with double-sided tape before putting on the t-shirt, so it will last longer and better.
  • Now tuck the ends of the t-shirt into your pants and fasten the whole thing with a belt that you buckle around the pants as usual.
  • If you have pink shoes wear them with them, otherwise pink sneakers will do.
  • If you want to be a dirty pig, you can spice up your homemade costume by smearing on your outfit with black or brown watercolor paint and a brush.

Matching accessories for your piggy costume

  1. Take a paper cup and paint it pink. To do this, you can take pink watercolor paint.
  2. Using a craft knife, cut two small round holes in the bottom of the cup, these will become your nostrils.
  3. Pierce the cup once on both sides at the drinking end and take a rubber band about eight inches long and tie both ends to the punched holes of the cup. Now you can put on the pig’s nose like a mask. 
  4. You can get pig ears on plastic headbands from a carnival store or costume shop and then put them on your head.
